This Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example uses the Folders.Add method to add the new folder named "My Personal Contacts" to the default Contacts folder.

Visual Basic for Applications
Sub CreatePersonalContacts()
    Dim myNamespace As Outlook.NameSpace
    Dim myFolder As Outlook.Folder
    Dim myNewFolder As Outlook.Folder
    
    Set myNamespace = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI")
    Set myFolder = myNamespace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderContacts)
    Set myNewFolder = myFolder.Folders.Add("My Personal Contacts")
End Sub

This VBA example uses the Folders.Add method to add two new folders in the Tasks folder. The first folder, "My Notes Folder", will contain note items. The second folder, "My Contacts Folder", will contain contact items. If the folders already exist, a message box will inform the user.

Visual Basic for Applications
Sub CreateFolders()
    Dim myNamespace As Outlook.NameSpace
    Dim myFolder As Outlook.Folder
    Dim myNotesFolder As Outlook.Folder
    Dim myContactFolder As Outlook.Folder
    
    Set myNamespace = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI")
    Set myFolder = myNamespace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderTasks)
    On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
    Set myNotesFolder = _
        myFolder.Folders.Add("My Notes Folder", olFolderNotes)
    Set myContactFolder = _
        myFolder.Folders.Add("My Contacts Folder", olFolderContacts)
    Exit Sub
ErrorHandler:
    MsgBox "Error creating the folder. The folder may already exist."
    Resume Next
End Sub
